Storyline

Le monde d’hier 2022

The World of Yesterday is a film that tells a story of modern France, which is a reflection of the current political climate in America. The movie is a blend of morality tale, political thriller and a vivid portrait of our current moment. The plot follows the French president, played by Léa Drucker, who has decided to step down and has thrown her support to a successor, but a potential scandal could toss the upcoming election to a right-wing demagogue (Thierry Godard). The Secretary-General (Denis Podalydès) warns that “If France falls, so does Europe” . With only three days to act, the president has to consider an unthinkable course of action to prevent the election from going in the wrong direction. The president also carries a personal secret which adds more complexity to the situation. Directed by Diastème, the film poses many timely questions, particularly “What happens when state secrets are personal?”
